Switzerland vs Cameroon Preview
Former Schaffhausen manager Murat Yakin takes Switzerland to its first World Cup without Vladmir Petkovic. Since August 2021, the Basler has led Switzerland to an unbeaten World Cup qualification campaign, finishing ahead of Italy with 18 points out of 24.
A-Team remained in League A of the Nations League after beating Portugal, Spain, and the Czech Republic. Despite losing 2-0 to Ghana in their final warm-up game, the Swiss are confident heading into their fourth straight World Cup. Breel Embolo and Granit Xhaka are in terrific form.
Cameroon has struggled after their Africa Cup of Nations run, winning just one of their last five, against Burundi. Karl Toko Ekambi broke Algerian hearts in March to qualify Rigobert Song’s men for Qatar.
The Indomitable Lions are the fourth-lowest ranked team in the tournament, 28 places below Switzerland and 22 behind everyone else in Group G. With attacking talent like Toko Ekambi and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who has 11 goals and three assists in his previous 10 games, the five-time African champions will head into this vital World Cup opening with real conviction.
